A touching story of survival and strength...
29 December 1999 | by geekwomanSee all my reviews

I have had the extraordinary pleasure of meeting Gerda Weissmann Klein, and to be able to talk to, and have her share with me the astounding tale of the hardships she overcame in the Holocaust, was an experience that changed my life. This documentary shows one survivor's story of how she overcame a death march, her town and country turning against her and her family, and the strength it takes to make it through, and the strength is takes to educate generations of children on the horrors of the Holocaust.
